Gulf Specimen Lab Visits!

Liana holds up a mollusk as Kennedy looks on. All the kindergartners loved exploring the touch tank in the Gulf Specimen Lab's travelling exhibit.  A scientist taught everyone about common animals in the Gulf of Mexico, and about the fragile ecosystem there.

The Georgia Department of Education has partnered with a children's eBook provider to give free digital book access to all Georgia students this summer. The effort to encourage reading is called the
Get Georgia Reading campaign.  Click here to try it! We encourage all Hand-in-Hand parents to try out eBooks this summer with your young reader!


Thomas County Schools Summer Reading Challenge

The Thomas County School System wants students to READ this summer!  Did you know that students can have up to a 2-3 month loss in reading ability over the summer?  It's important for students to spend time sharpening their reading skills!

Each school has developed a summer reading challenge for students.  We would like for students to read for 15-30 minutes everyday this summer.  The guidelines and requirements vary by school.  Please click the links below for more information about each school's guidelines.  If you need more information, please talk to the media specialist at each school.  The guidelines are for the school the students will be attending in the 2015-2016 school year.
